In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Charlotte French and Robert Riley meet with Becky and Steve Tipton to talk all about honey, including how to harvest from a Langstroth Hive.
Steve Tipton has been a beekeeper for over 30 years. He received his master beekeeper award from the Univ. Of Nebraska, Midwest Master Beekeeper program. He loves sharing his passion for beekeeping. Retired from the Goodyear Tire Co engineering dept., he’s made beekeeping his retirement job as well as other farming chores on our small Meriden, KS farm.
The color of honey can vary greatly depending on what plants the pollen was sourced from.
Here is the video that Becky and Steve participated in before this podcast recording. They are exploring a hive that has collapsed under the hive beetle.
